Joni Sternbach is a photographer from New York who specialises in the early wet plate collodion photographic technique. she has many beautiful projects to explore on her website, but the one that caught my eye was Surfland – where Joni documents surfers on the coasts of the US and Australia.
i did a little dance in my chair when i discovered the Wet Plate Collodion Portraits by Daniel Carrillo. Dan is a photographer and printmaker from Seattle who has taken close to 100 portraits of people in the Seattle area arts community using the wet collodion method – a photographic process which was invented in the mid 19th century. be sure to watch Patrick Wright’s video below to see Dan talking about the project and explaining the process behind these amazing photographs. check out Dan’s Flickr stream and also visit his blog.
